Strong Listing Activity in July: Unpacking the Waterloo Region Real Estate Market - Rego Realty
The Waterloo Region residential real estate market has been bustling with activity this July. Despite the Bank of Canada’s recent interest rate hike, sellers have been active, contributing to the second-highest level of new listing activity for July in over a decade.

What the Numbers Mean

The numbers tell a story of a market that is both dynamic and resilient. The increase in sales and new listings indicates a healthy level of activity and interest in the region’s real estate market.

For buyers, this means more options to choose from. However, the average number of days to sell a property remains low at 16 days, indicating that properties are moving quickly, and buyers need to be prepared to act swiftly.

For sellers, the strong listing activity and quick sales times are positive signs. The increase in the average sale price for most property types compared to last year suggests that sellers can expect good returns on their properties.

For investors, the steady year-over-year increase in the average sale price for all residential properties and the strong demand for homes in the region indicate a robust and growing market. The slight decrease in prices compared to June 2023 could present an opportune moment for investment.

Here’s a snapshot of the key statistics for July 2023:
